APKASS – ESSKA Traveling Fellowship

This inter-continental exchange programme is run in collaboration with European Society of Sports Traumatology Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA). It is a scientific and cultural exchange between orthopaedic sports medicine physicians in Europe and Asia-Pacific. The programme provides the fellows a valuable opportunity to exchange scientific information, stimulate research and develop collaboration and lifelong friendships.

For each travelling fellowship, THREE fellows are selected to visit overseas sports medicine institutes and facilities for 3-4 weeks, and are accompanied by a reputed senior orthopaedic sports medicine specialist as the “Godfather”. During the tour, fellows will

1.) participate in scientific symposia with host surgeons and give presentations;

2.) view research facilities and surgical procedures;

3.) attend a national sport medicine meeting in the region they are visiting and

4.) participate in social and cultural activities with the local sports medicine community.

The fellowship covers travel, accommodation and minor expenses. It is sponsored by DJO, whom we thank for their loyal support.
